iconv should know about latinN aliases
It appears that GNU iconv has aliases for latinN mapping to ISO-8859-N, whereas we only have simple "8859", and "8859-N" aliases.
It would increase the compatibility with various 3rd party software if we also had the latinN aliases (and anything else that stood out as missing).
I'm not sure which side of the l10n mess this would be, so am filing against libiconv.

Correct. That package comes from the g11n consolidation. In fact, I'd love to see this code reimplemented properly in illumos gate. We need geniconvtbl (which looks pretty straight forward) or pluggable modules. Then it would be easy to add the aliases.
Anyone who wants to work on this code should talk to me. I have a specific interest in seeing this work finished up.
